The course offers a complete programme of studies from 9am to 6pm. It consists of either a full individual programme (6 Tutorial lessons per day) or a combined individual and small group programme (4 Tutorial lessons and 3 Quatorial lessons per day). Both programmes include time for personal preparation work, consolidation work, research and multi-media assignments.

Typically the course covers:
· review of the grammar points still needing attention to develop accuracy in the use of the language
· development of the vocabulary used in business situations including small talk for cross-cultural bonding
· interactive and dynamic oral practice sessions to encourage the expression of ideas and opinions, incorporating new vocabulary and idioms as well as manipulating sophisticated and more complex language structures
· comprehension practice to help participants acquire a comfortable understanding of a written document or a spoken presentation, be it of a general nature or business-related
· role-plays to stimulate a wide range of business scenarios including presentations, negotiations, telephone conversations and meetings

Throughout the programme students are actively encouraged to express their opinions as they would in their own workplace.
